Is it too early to start planning for Halloween? Not for me! Last year I made an elaborate Marie Antoinette costume complete with panniers (I started sewing in September!) and the year before that I made an even more ambitious octopus costume. This year, after a lot of thought and brain storming, Brian and I decided to do a couples costume for the first time. I don’t want to give anything away just yet, but I’m starting the planning stages now because this year I have to make two costumes instead of one.
